Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

Last Saturday, I went to On the Border with some friends. I ordered a salad to be 100% gluten free. When I was almost done with the salad, I took a bite that had a tortilla strip in it! I freaked out and dug through the rest of the salad, and I found another tortilla strip. Even though they were very apologetic and professional about it, it does not change the fact that I was sick for FOUR DAYS (yes, that's right, a tiny tortilla strip made me sick for four days)! 

Needless to say, I am not eating out for awhile. Especially at On the Border! 

But, I do love Mexican food, especially fajitas! When I saw this recipe on pinterest, I knew I had to make it! 

I found the recipe from Six Sisters' Stuff

Here's what you need! 

(Serves 4-6)
·         1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
·         1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes (I used garlic roasted tomatoes! It was so yummy!)
·         1 (4 oz) can diced green chilies
·         1 medium onion, sliced
·         1 large green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
·         2 tablespoons canola oil
·         2 teaspoons chili powder
·         2 teaspoons cumin
·         1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
·         1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
·         1/4 teaspoon salt (I thought it needed more, so add to taste)
·         Corn tortillas, warmed to serve

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 13×9 baking dish. Mix together chicken, tomatoes, chilies, peppers, and onions in the dish.

In a small bowl combine the oil and spices. Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and toss to coat.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.


Serve with warmed tortillas and enjoy!

It was really yummy! I ended up adding quite a bit more salt. I also had some jarred queso in the fridge, so I would spread some on the tortilla, and then put the mixture inside. It was DELICIOUS! It was really quick and healthy! I could definitely do this in the middle of the week! You definitely will not be disappointed!
